Yesterday we took a trip out to a couple of local farmshops searching for seasonal treats, particularly purple sprouting broccoli and rhubarb. Purple sprouting broccoli is only available in early spring so it always feels like an occasion when we have it. It is also quite beautiful with its purple florets, just a shame it goes green when you cook it.
I felt like dipping back in the watercolours last night and went for straight-to-watercolour slightly abstract, loose, splashy look to this spread. The broccoli is probably more abstract than I intended but the one thing I am particularly pleased with is the variation in colour. Now I’m really looking forward to the growing season to get a chance paint and draw more vegetables!
Have you done any fruit or vegetable drawings? Or growing anything in the garden this year?
